Who doesn’t love butterflies? I fell in love with thus quilt the second I laid eyes on it. Butterflies are a symbol of piece to me and I just love them.
I loved this quilt pattern the first time I saw it and had to make it. I used leftover fabrics from past sewing projects and spent the weekend cutting out the pieces. I made this quilt for my daughter’s bed. She flipped out over it when she saw what I was making for her. She actually jumped in and helped me cut out the fabric pieces and we had such a fun time doing this together. I just know she’ll be a quilter someday!
I grew up sleeping under a darling quilt with umbrella ladies in southern belle dresses that my Grandmother made.
I remember tracing the pretty embroidery work with my fingers as a small child and thinking that I wanted to be one of those pretty ladies when I grew up. That quilt was washed to death and my Mother finally packed it up for safe keeping. She gave it to me when I was an adult and I look at it with so many fond memories.
I’m sure that my daughter will have her quilt for years to come and probably pass it down to her daughter some day.
